It can be hard to locate dissertations and theses online free of charge. Happily, the database ProQuest now offers an open access service called PQDT Open, a site where anyone can search for and download free dissertations and theses. Users can search by date, author, title, school, adviser, and/or keyword.

I conducted a date range search to find out how many dissertations/theses are currently in PQDT’s holdings-  currently it appears to be close to 9000, and can only grow from here!
